Advance Seat Assignment Changes effective 19 September 2023

Virgin Atlantic recognise that many feel reassured by pre-assigning their favourite seat at the time of booking. To allow customers to personalise their journeys the way they choose, they’re updating the ways in which they offer advanced seat selection in the economy cabin. This allows customers to secure extra legroom, their preferred window or aisle seat or simply provide the peace of mind that their travelling party will be sat together.

Virgin Atlantic Gold Card holders will be able to select their seat free of charge at the time of booking, whilst Silver Card members can pre-select their seats up to seven days before they fly. For our other customers, they will have the option to pay to pre-select their seat during the booking process, or choose to select free of charge once check-in opens, 24 hours before departure.

Customers who booked before 19 September will still be offered free of charge seat assignments. Charges for preferred seats, extra legroom and exit rows still apply.
